I am not very good about including a very important member of our family. In all honesty, when the boys came along, our time became even more stretched and one member has had to pay the price. Our first "son", Gus, our 170 pound bull mastiff. He is a massively awesome dog - he does very well with the boys. Doesn't mind the boys in his face or tugging on different parts of his body. We've been trying to be better again about giving him the attention he deserves. Here is what he looks like during meals - hopeful for one of the boys to drop something delicious. . . . surprising, very surprisingly, not much fell today!
